The Sun-Sentinel reports that FC Barcelona and Miami businessman Marcelo Claure, who owns FC Bolivar, recently met with Mayors Julio Robaina and Manny Diaz to explore the possibility of a stadium for an MLS expansion team that’s in the the works for South Florida.

Now soccer fans don’t jump the gun, this was very preliminary considering the franchise has not been approved and there’s a five-year agreement on the table with FIU. As Mr. Claure put it, ‘you’ve got to walk before you can run’ — he’s right and we wish them well, be it at FIU or in the future in Hialeah.

Background: South Florida briefly had the Fusion, which played at Fort Lauderdale’s Lockhart Stadium for four years before being disbanded after the 2001 season.

Its about time South Florida had a major league soccer team again — its a no-brainer the demographics are perfect.
